    Eventide TimeFactor and ModFactor pedals; lots of ground covered in two extremely versatile pedals.

    My PRRI Limited Edition blew up on me and when I returned it (still in the return window) I got a Blues Deluxe I lacquered tweed. Love it so far but still in the trial period. I was going to get a DRRI but it sounded so thin and I liked the lush sound of the BD so much better.

    Dr. Z Surgical Steel Amp. Incredible! Totally different than other steel amps. Puts Peavey's in the dirt! EF86 pre. Dual KT88s for 94 watts. Ultra-linear transformers. Amazing!

    I just ordered a Vox AC4TV Mini. MF had a STOD on it for $140. I'm curious to hear it at 1/10th of a watt.

    I finally bought a nice mic to record with a while back. An older AKG 2000B. Exceeds my expectations to record acoustic and female vocals. I'm now on the hunt for a specific older mic for amps and deep voices. Still a noobie in the recording realm, but learning a lot so far.

    My latest score was a $200 loaded tele blacktop HH body. I slapped-on a spare LaCabronita neck and was off to the races on the cheap. :)

    GAS got to me. Bad GAS that became AAS. To ease the AAS, I've bought a 5 watter grab'n'go. Seemed a good deal, with 2x12AX7 in the pre-amp, gain/tone/volume controls and an EL84 output tube to a Celestion Tube 10 speaker.
    It has speaker outs, some form of FX loop and a standyby switch. What more could I ask for. It's an 'off-brand' Chinese unit called an 'E-Wave DG-5C'
    Youtube listenings of the head unit reveal a sound I could grow to like. To be delivered tomorrow, anticipation runs high.

    Yesterday, I picked up a mini crybaby and a 20' cable.
    And put down on a used G&L tribute.

    True, and I did consider getting one… BUT, I got these two significantly cheaper than normal list, as they were "open box" versions with some very minor dings, but with full warranty, so I immediately got to use TWO effects at the same time (as opposed to the limited dual-effect algorithms on the H9). :)

    Plus, 1) I like twiddling actual knobs; and 2) I can STILL get an H9 in the future. In fact, since I'm not particularly interested in pitch-based effects, what I'd likely do is get the H9 CORE version, and just get a handful of reverb effects, and maybe some others as time goes on. It does seem like they are not adding new algorithms as frequently as many hoped they would.

    I also considered the Strymon line, but could not pass these up at the lower prices. I am sure there are stand-alone pedals that do some of these effects better, but that ends up taking a lot of pedalboard real estate, as well as costing more in the long run. I'll say this: there has never been a better time to be a pedal fan than now!

    I too would like the H9 core, if you have 1 H9 max and 4 cores you have 5 Max's all the max's algorithms are blue toothed to the cores (I have an H9 Max)

    By the way, you scored on those Eventide pedals !!! congrats

    Thanks; I was quite pleased to find such good deals at AMS.

    I'll say this: if I toured or did a LOT of live playing where I wanted minimum fuss, I'd definitely opt for the H9s. But for experimentation and programming on the fly, having knobs to tweak is way easier.
